      SLC Placement Request Sheet
      We will start collecting the SLC Placement Request sheets on Monday, January 13, 2020 beginning at 7:00 A.M. in the Auditorium.
      After 9:00 A.M. on Monday, January 13th through February 7, 2020, please submit your SLC Placement Request sheet to the Attendance Office. This is phase one for submitting the sheet.
      **Very IMPORTANT, this first phase is just for students who Walter Reed Middle School is their school of residence. If Walter Reed Middle School is not your school of residence, parent must obtain a district permit first before submitting the SLC Placement Request sheet. The SAS/eChoices permit can be found on the eChoices website at http://echoices.lausd.net/.
      All other permits must be obtained through Mr. Segura beginning in February.

      Student Safety

      Walter Reed Middle School and the LA City Bureau of Contract Administration are working together to keep out students safe when commuting to school and home.  
      Our objective is to make the student’s daily commute and safe and simple as possible. That being said, after some discussion with the Metro Sound Wall Construction Management and the Contractor (Powell), our consensus is that it would be best to simply instruct all students to walk north on Colfax to Riverside, followed by eastward to Tujunga….. instead of the currently closed route of: east on Sarah, north on Tujunga to Riverside. 
      Both routes take the students to the South-west corner of Tujunga/Riverside, but the alternate route mentioned above keeps the students safe and out of a live traffic lane. This safer alternate route is merely a few hundred feet further than the original route. We ask that all student and adults follow this route.
      Thank you

      Important Update

      Good morning parents, this is Mr. Ortiz, your principal at Walter Reed High School, with a major update on gas leakage. District workers are working to repair our gas leak, the gas supply is cut to our school while they make repairs to the pipe. All students and staff are safe, and they are kept away from the area with great caution. We are working with our neighborhood school to provide our students with a hot meal option for brunch. The instruction will not be affected and the students leave today at 12:37 pm. We appreciate your patience and cooperation to face this inconvenience. I will continue to provide updates as they become available. If you have any questions, call me at 818-487-7600. Thank you.

      Friendly SLC reminder:

      SLC Placement Request Forms will be accepted for drop off in the Auditorium on Monday, Jan. 13 from 7:00 – 9:00 am.  A phase two drop off date will be forthcoming.

      Important Update:

      Good morning.
      This is Reed Middle School Principal Mr. Ortiz with an important update for parents, guardians and staff. District workers have turned off the gas supply to our school while they make repairs to the pipeline. All students and staff are safe, and they are being kept away from the area in an abundance of caution. However, Food Services is unable to prepare hot meals, so cold entrees will be served today during lunch and supper. Instruction will be not affected. We appreciate your patience and cooperation in dealing with this inconvenience.  I will continue to provide you with updates as they become available. If you have any questions, please call me at 818-487-7600. Thank you.
      Buenos días. Este es el director de la escuela secundaria Reed, Freddie Ortiz, con una actualización importante para padres, tutores y personal. Los trabajadores del distrito han cerrado el suministro de gas a nuestra escuela mientras hacen reparaciones a la tubería. Todos los estudiantes y el personal están a salvo, y se les mantiene alejados del área con mucha precaución. Sin embargo, Food Services no puede preparar comidas calientes, por lo que hoy se servirán platos fríos durante el almuerzo y la cena. La instrucción no se verá afectada. Agradecemos su paciencia y cooperación para enfrentar este inconveniente. Continuaré proporcionándole actualizaciones a medida que estén disponibles. Si tiene alguna pregunta, llámeme al 818-487-7600. Gracias.
